At GitHub Satellite India 2021, we announced GitHub Open Source Grants, committing one crore (10 million) Indian rupees to support and fund open source maintainers and contributors, as they continue to build open source software and make an impact for India and the world.
GitHub Open Source Grants recipients
Since May 2021, we’ve received hundreds of applications from across the country, and we’re working hard to continue to expand these programs that support and fund developers in India. Developers from 81 cities and 19 states across India applied, and showcased their open source projects. From maintainers building developer tools, to contributors supporting COVID-19 projects, the passion and energy of the open source developers in India is truly inspiring!
